Beginning May 5, 2014 and continuing for approximately six to eight weeks, weather permitting, Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) electrical crews will be upgrading the streetcar overhead power line infrastructure at the Broadview Station streetcar platform loop.
The upgrade is necessary to accommodate the next generation of streetcars that will join the TTC’s fleet of service vehicles. Over the past year, electrical crews have been upgrading the overhead wire system along streetcar routes in the TTC network.
Night work hours
Due to the complexity of this work and complete this overhead work in a safe manner, work will take place between the hours of 1:00 a.m. to 6:00 a.m., Monday through Friday.
On average, two to three TTC overhead trucks with hydraulic equipment will be used together to carry out this work. While efforts will be made by the crew to keep noise to a minimum, beeping sound from back-up alarms on the TTC trucks will be audible. Illumination from equipment lights may also be noticeable.
TTC service and traffic movement
Scheduled streetcar service and bus operations will be maintained through the station during the times when service hours and work hours overlap. During certain phases of the work, lane restrictions will also be necessary on Erindale Avenue and on Broadview Avenue adjacent to the station.
The TTC regrets any inconvenience that may be caused as a result of this night work.
